I called in to ESPN Syracuse a few minutes ago, and got to ask Jim Boeheim a couple of questions (YIPEEEEEEEEEEE!!!)
The first, and I just HAD to do it, was what he thought of the G'town Puppies denying ticket sales to, essentially, Syracuse fans. I explained alums had first dibs up until a week before the game is actually played in which they are required to sell what is left. His thought? "Geez, usually they are just trying to SELL the tickets..." (asserting they had a tough time doing so...TAKE THAT HOYAS) Gomez and Matt Park also noted how ORANGE it was last year in the upper level.
I also asked him, given Pitt's rebounding and assist rate compared to ours, we weren't incredibly different and if he thought they would be our toughest test this year. I should have expected his response, but it was fun anyway!
(His response was you can't count anybody out in the BE, and I agreed by saying SJ's has opened some eyes so far this season.)
It's not every day you get to talk to a HOF Coach on the phone/radio. I feel...INSPIRED!
Example: I just got home and as I walked by the fridge my roomate went for a beer and I instinctively dropped into zone coverage
